It's pretty convenient, actually. Simple change makes a big difference.
also on gmail blog:
Is this the so called magic inbox?
Anyone whats the keyboard short cut to go inside "Inbox" and "Priority Inbox" ?
The current one "g-i" takes the view to "Priority Inbox"
the labs Custom keyboard shortcuts might help
hebbet The idea is great! But it couldn't find anything useful there. The only option was "Go to inbox -> gi"
aneeskA Does g+i direct you to the priority inbox once you've set it up as the default one in your Gmail settings? Since this new feature isn't available in my account (as usual...), I can't test this on my own.
